Welcome to HCM and thank you for the query.
I understand your concern for your mother.
The tablet that is making her sleepy and unsteady is Pregabid ME 75 (Pregabalin 75mg + Methylcobalamin 750mcg). She should take it at bed time. Then she may be able to tolerate it better.
I presume Totol AM and Betacap 20 are prescribed by two different doctors as both contain beta blockers. Your mother's blood pressure is not under good control. She should reduce the salt in her food and follow a DASH diet and lose weight if overweight. When she is able to exercise and practice stress relief , these would also help to normalise the blood pressure.
